Quite right Butch, snooker is a game played by fat, beer swilling bogans, as described by Wikipedia .....
"One version of events states that Colonel Sir Neville Chamberlain of the Devonshire regiment (not the later Prime Minister of the same name) was playing this new GAME when his opponent failed to pot a ball and Chamberlain called him a snooker. It thus became attached to the billiards GAME now bearing its name as inexperienced players were labelled as snookers.
Snooker grew in popularity in England but generally it was still a GAME for the gentry, and many well established gentleman clubs which had a billiards table would not allow nonmembers inside to play. To accommodate the popularity of the GAME , smaller and more open snooker-specific clubs started to be formed.
The GAME of snooker grew in the later half of the 19th century and the early 20th century, and by 1927 the first World Snooker Championship had been organised by Joe Davis who, as a professional English billiards and snooker player, moved the GAME from a pastime activity into a more professional sphere. Joe Davis won every world championship until 1946 when he retired. The GAME went into a decline through the 1950s and 1960s with little interest generated outside of those who played. In 1959, Davis introduced a variation of the GAME , known as snooker plus, to try to improve the GAME 's popularity by adding two extra colours. However, it never caught on."
Don't you just love Geordies, they're so easy to take the pith out of!
